The 2016 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC) has been the premier international forum for disseminating recent advances in the field of systems simulation for almost 50 years. The longest-running conference devoted to simulation as a discipline, this year’s WSC will be held on Dec. 11-14 at the Crystal Gateway in Arlington, Va., just outside of Washington, D.C. The theme for WSC 2016 is “Simulating Complex Service Systems.”

WSC is designed for professionals and academics from all backgrounds and across a broad range of interests. Academic tracks include analysis methodology, modeling methodology, simulation optimization, agent-based simulation and hybrid simulations. Applied uses of simulation include social and behavioral simulation, defense and security, modeling and analysis of semiconductor manufacturing, healthcare applications, logistics, manufacturing applications, networks and communications, project management and construction, environmental and sustainability applications, and general applications. Additionally, WSC features introductory and advanced tutorials, simulation education, case studies, Ph.D. colloquia, poster sessions, an extensive group of exhibitors and vendor tutorials. Along with the lineup of tracks and speakers, WSC 2016 will also have a special cross-fertilization track.

WSC 2016 is sponsored by technical co-sponsors ACM/SIGSIM, ASA, ASIM, IEEE/SMC and NIST, along with IIE, INFORMS-SIM and SCS.

Fighting terrorists online: Identifying extremists before they post content

New research has found a way to identify extremists, such as those associated with the terrorist group ISIS, by monitoring their social media accounts, and can identify them even before they post threatening content. The research, “Finding Extremists in Online Social Networks,” which was recently published in the INFORMS journal Operations Research, was conducted by Tauhid Zaman of the MIT, Lt. Col. Christopher E. Marks of the U.S. Army and Jytte Klausen of Brandeis University. Read more →

Syrian conflict yields model for attrition dynamics in multilateral war

Based on their study of the Syrian Civil War that’s been raging since 2011, three researchers created a predictive model for multilateral war called the Lanchester multiduel. Unless there is a player so strong it can guarantee a win regardless of what others do, the likely outcome of multilateral war is a gradual stalemate that culminates in the mutual annihilation of all players, according to the model.
